Gobi 65

Unless you try, you never know.Unless you cook a specific dish, you will always be impressed with those who sensational blow that they are the only one who can. Beats me! I was always the impession that Gobi 65 was like a dish that only those sitting close to god can make. You can't blame me. At the rate some people, aplenty actually in the visual world, blow their cooking trumpet about Gobi 65, I thought its a gift of god if you can make. Rubbish! Nonsense! Stop believing all these people. People who must always feel that they are above the rest. Actually for a fact, anyone can make Gobi 65. Anyone, even beginners. I am definitely not gonna let any of you down. I am going to share with you this, my easy version Gobi 65.

Keep it simple (Curry Leaves Potato Chips, Tomato Vegetable Soup & Mango Salad Vegetarian) I mean why add millions of ingredients into a dish when just a couple can kick in tastiness (Garlic Coriander Rice, Apple Cucumber Salad & Chilli Potato). Gobi 65 (Aloo Gobi) basically is batter coated fried cauli florets (Cauliflower Cutlets). Cauli of course is versatile, you can make any dish out of it. Cauli was also like a gold commodity those years back ,now, anyone can afford. Gobi  65 I believe will remain as a vegetarian dish, unless of course there are other recipes which require adding meat or seafood. Anyway, not our problem. Our main concern today is this Vegetarian Gobi 65. Delicious and crunchy (Crispy Fried OkraPurple Cabbage Stir Fried, Fried Masala Brinjal & Bean Sprouts Salad) Gobi 65 will rock and roll as a side dish, actually, come to think of it, nothing should stop you for having it for tea time. Right. I shall now leave you for grabbing the recipe (Instant Curry Laksa Vegetarian, Tom Yum Soup Vegetarian & Vegetable Green Curry). Take care everyone. 

1/4 cauliflower - cut into florets

For batter
2 tbsp corn flour
2 tbsp yoghurt
A pinch of baking soda
1 tsp chilli flakes (optional)
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp ginger paste
1/2 tsp garlic paste
3 sprigs curry leaves - sliced thinly/shredded
Salt for taste
Oil for frying

Steam or parboil cauli till soft and tender.
Keep aside.
Mix together all the other ingredients (except oil), pour water bit by bit and whisk/stir for a right consistency batter.
Dip cauli inside and deep fry.
Trend alongside "nava-k", possibly on every other social media please. Your support will rocket my pride and joy. Thank you everyone.
